Alone In The Dark 5 [Multi 5] (DVD9 to 2x DVD5)

1--> Copy the “Data” directory from the DvD9 to a temporal directory on your hardware.

2--> Copy the “Alone.exe” ,“Manual.pdf” and the “Readme” files into the “Data” Temp folder.

3--> Move the folders “Movies” and “Shadercache” from the “Data” Temp folder to another folder called “1” . Put the “1” folder into the “Data” Temp folder.

PD: So you have a Temp folder in your Hardware (desktop for example) and inside you have all the files of the game (A big ,etc...) and one folder with videos (called “1”)

4--> Download and install Inno Setup (http://www.jrsoftware.org/isdl.php )

5--> Download this file and extract it all into the “Data” Temp folder. ( AITD5-2xDVD5.7z )

6--> Right clic on the *.iss file and choose “Compile” option.

7--> This will create a folder called “Output” where the setup files will be created.

8--> Now put the “Autorun.inf and the “game.ico” files to te Output folder.
9--> Edit the “Autorun.inf” like this :
[autorun]
OPEN=setup.exe
icon=game.ico

10--> Copy the directory “DirectXRedist” and “VCRedist” from DvD9 to the “Output” folder.
PD: You can also put another folder to put patches , etc ...

11--> Now you have all the game into the Temp folder !
12--> Burn all the content of the “Output” folder (the “setup-3.bin” and others will be put into the second DvD)
13--> Burn the “setup-3.bin” , “setup-4.bin”, “setup-5.bin” to the second DvD5
For the second DvD5 , edit Autorun like this :
[autorun]
OPEN=0
icon=game.ico

Notes:
No internet requiered , uninstall works , all works
Try it first before burning ; you can repport me any bugs/errors and I will fix it.
Sorry for my bad english :P

Tried it and the installation does work well, i just found one glitch as it asks for Disk3 and not Disk2 not a real hassle though.

Thanks snapx

snapx installation works great, only glitch is that setup ask for Disk3 not Disk2. just edit this lines marked red in snapx .ISS file

Code:
[Setup]
DiskSpanning=true
SlicesPerDisk=3
DiskSliceSize=1566000000
AppName=Alone In The Dark
AppVerName=Alone In The Dark
and setup will create 5 .bin files
Code:
setup-1a
setup-1b
setup-1c
setup-2a
setup-2b
put setup-1 files on dvd1 and setup-2 files on dvd2 and installation will ask you to insert disk2.

Combined snapx + lonerunner
and game work well.
One little edit in AITD.iss :

[Setup]
DiskSpanning=true
SlicesPerDisk=3
DiskSliceSize=1257664000

If chose DiskSliceSize=1566000000 , DVD 1 wil be over 4,3 gigs.

Thanks for both

Alone In The Dark 5 [Multi 5] (DVD9 to 2x DVD5)

Combining the three post (snapx + lonernner + softy2k) worked.
But I found a problem.
The Alone.exe shortcut in start menu does not work.
How do you solve this little detail?

I resolved my problem from the start menu.
If you are having the same problem, simply add the command line written in red for "AITD.iss".
